Using stencilling as a basis for an exploration of the landscape, my work is a study of form, structure, light and colour.
Having renewed my appreciation for and relationship with the stunning natural Scottish landscape over recent years, my work has been gradually redirected towards the mountains, valleys and beautiful terrain of the north and west. I am exploring the relationship between synthetic materials and a process largely applied in a street art context and whether it can be an effective medium to interpret traditional landscapes.
Influenced by hundreds of years of landscape painters � particularly the French Impressionists, I approach my work with the importance of light and touch in mind, endeavouring to convey the feel and atmosphere of a place. The relationship of colour to the landscape forms an important consideration; with a limited and synthetic palette available, the flow of the terrain becomes increasingly important, driving the narrative of the image.
